Military Time or Civil Time could you change that?

I wondering if the hours can be changed to a 12 hour clock, instead of a 24 hour clock, that would be appreciated. I prefer to do the calculations for the payroll on the regular clock, not the 24 hour military clock, as I have to convert to the payroll 100 and not the clock 60 minutes. Therefore, working with a regular clock format of am/pm is a lot easier to calculate from.

    Hi Karl,

    Timelime uses the time format that is set in the OS X System Preferences.
    If you go to System Preferences > Language & Region, you can uncheck the "24-Hour-Time" checkbox. Then Timelime will use the am/pm time format.

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks for the answer, but I think that I did not explain correctly, the problem is not how timelime display the time in the window is when exporting the time records only give certain formats 0.00 - 0:00:00 - 0h 0m 0s - 0 hours 0 minutes 0 seconds it not has 00:00 PM or AM, that is the part if we can print directly from the display window we will be fine. Could you add this format option in the version 1.3?

    Also I red that you are talking that in version 1.4 will be have the print feature, but what is the status of version 1.3 coming this month?

    Hi Karl,

    I just checked... It does use the AM/PM format automatically in the CSV, if set in System Preferences as described above. I attached some screenshots.

    Could you please try again...

    Version 1.3 is coming soon. I'll planning to get it released before middle of October, but I can't give a specific release date.

    Thanks, Niko

    Ok I checked on both OSX 10.8 and 10.9 and I have the same settings for region Gregorian Calendar, not marked 24-Hour Time and displaying my time settings like a.m p.m but in the Timelime export CSV window not shows in the same way, differences my format 0:00 reads (decimal) beside, you can see the old post to see the options that my timelime version 1.2.3 gives.

    Attached the screenshoots of my export window and settings preferences

    I just checked on OS X 10.8.5... You are right, it doesn't use the AM/PM format when exporting to CSV.

    However, on OSX 10.9.5 it works with version 1.2.3 on my Macs. Could you please take screenshots on 10.9, so I can reproduce the issue.
